Muay Thai

Muay Thai is a combat sport that uses stand-up striking along with various clinching techniques. This physical and mental discipline which includes combat on shins is known as "the art of eight limbs" because it is characterized by the combined use of fists, elbows, knees, shins.

Muay Thai is associated with a good physical preparation that makes a full-contact fighter very efficient. It became widespread internationally in the twentieth century, when practitioners defeated notable practitioners of other martial arts.

Muay Thai can be traced back to the 16th century, developed from the fighting style of the famous fighter Nai Khanomtom. Its ancestor is Muay Boran (or “ancient boxing”), which in the 1930s was formalized with rules and equipment influenced by Western boxing.

    "Attended a charity boxing event with 6 amateur fights on the card. These lads had trained hard and were supported by family and friends. There was a big difference in quality but a lot of money was raised for worthy charity causes. The set up was excellent with a constant flow of liquid refreshment. The referees and judges were of a high standard and got all the major decisions right. Well done the organizers on a thoroughly good nights entertainment."

    "During our holiday we wanted to take some Muay Thai lessons. We are a family with two boys (17 and 14 yrs). I contacted a few gyms, but decided to go for Honour Muay Thai because of the responsiveness and because they understood what we wanted. We were inexperienced in Muay Thai so they offered us a few 1 hour lessons. It was a fantastic experience and we really enjoyed every minute of the training. The enthusiasm, the skills, the patience and the humor of the trainers was fantastic. We learned so many different techniques during the sessions and for us it was a great first acquaintance with Muay Thai. Many thanks and the boys want to come back soon."

    "For years I struggled with my left kicks. In this gym they took time to really explain the best way and why. Since then I could improve myself every training."

    "Very intelligent teaching and much attention in a group training. Big thumbs up!"

    "Amazing gym with a wonderful mix of training partners and coaches. Perfect for anyone wishing to improve their skills and fitness. The gym is attached to the Prasit stadium meaning when your chilling out you can watch some Muay Thai a couple nights a week. The gym currently has some top tier international fighters that were a privilege to train with. while there i stayed in the gym accommodation and it's more than suitable if you wish to live the life of a pro Thai boxer. Comfy beds, showers,toilets and good drinking water etc. Make sure you speak to Howard (the boss) he's the bald English bloke and one of the nicest people I've had the pleasure of meeting. Has a real passion for Muay Thai and it shows in the way he runs the gym. Anyone serious about Muay Thai should make the pilgrimage to Honour Gym."

    "Brand new camp in Thepprasit road ,just next to the stadium in soi 2, has space for training (big tatami), food and accommodation. If you are a professional fighter you will fight for sure at Max Muay Thai stadium, now the best in Pattaya (they organize many other fight around the country). Train 2 x day x 6 days, run, sparring, clinc, heavy bag, etc."

    "If you are a beginner or just you want to try the art of Thai boxing the trainers will welcome you and teach you everything you need to know about the national sport of Thailand!"

    "I have just returned from Honour MuayThai Gym in Pattaya this month. I spent 8 weeks at the gym as a sponsored fighter. I cannot speak highly enough of the gym, the owners, the trainers and the others that train at the gym. It was the best experience of my life so far. Everyone in the gym is very welcoming, there is no ego or bad atmosphere At all. Everyone at the gym is aiming to help each other and make sure that everyone is learning. The food, the accommodation and the training at the gym were 10/10! "

    ""

    "The fighters at th gym are regularly fighting on the Max Muay Thai events and events throughout Thailand and Asia. There is also discounted tickets at the gym for the Thepprasit boxing stadium shows which happen every Tuesday. "

    ""

    "I would highly recommend this gym to anyone looking to head to Thailand for Training in Muay Thai! I will certainly be going back."

    "I was a sponsored fighter at Honour Muay Thai for 8 weeks. I can't say enough good things about the place. The whole experience from the gym, training, food, accommodation! It was everything I expected and more! The atmosphere at the gym was amazing. I can't thank Howard enough for giving me the opportunity and then making me feel so welcome. I would recommend this gym to anyone."

    "Just got back to Australia after training at this gym for a month. Best gym I've been to in Thailand by far (been to a few having been involved in Thai boxing for twenty + years). Highly recommend if you want to train pure Muay Thai with trainers who are passionate about the sport."

    "I've trained at several Muay Thai gyms in Thailand for several months at a time (my longest stint was 6 months) at reputable gyms in Phuket and Chiang mai. Honour Muay Thai in Pattaya stands out as my favorite and the best gym I’ve trained at. I've trained Muay Thai for around 7 years and have fought in Thailand 4 times so am neither an elite fighter nor an amateur. "

    "I found the trainers at Honour Muay Thai are excellent, especially the head trainer, who is probably the most knowledgeable and the best at teaching khru I’ve had the pleasure of learning from. They are all very friendly, knowledgeable and very passionate about Muay Thai and especially about teaching Muay Thai! Whether you're a seasoned fighter or a beginner. "

    "The biggest difference in the training at Honour Muay Thai gym is simply that they care about you more than I’ve found at any other gym. I've of course bonded well with my trainers at other gyms and have felt they care about me, but at Honour Muay Thai, they are passionate about their teaching and want to see you improve as much as possible in the time you're there. "

    "There are times at other gyms when I’ve found myself shadow boxing, or hitting a bag where at no time the trainers paying attention to me or you'll go with a trainer and do the same 1,2, kick, jab, kick, 1,2 that you've done a thousand times but I have had plenty of sessions at other gyms where I don't feel I’ve learned anything or had a new technique to be practicing the same as I did here."

    "I’ve just got a little fitter doing the same techniques the same way I’ve been doing them for years. Here I always had a trainer overseeing what I was doing, if I was hitting a bag I was doing so practicing something new to me. I was constantly getting taught new things to work on, new tricks and techniques and felt the trainers were passionate about passing their knowledge on to me rather than just training me. "

    "Of course I come to Thailand to train but I come to learn! And whether you spend a week, a month or longer at Honour Muay Thai, you will learn a lot! Another moment that sticks out to me at Honour is when I had a fight on Tuesday, the head trainer met me Sunday at the gym and helped me with a few techniques for my fight, reiterating game plan etc."

    "I didn't need to purchase a private session for this, he did it because I was fighting a couple of days later, and he cared about me. I have at other gyms trained private sessions and learned a lot but have always thought that I could be taught these techniques within the group sessions I pay for, but as a I said at Honour Muay Thai, you don't just get trained, you learn."

    "I've never trained in Thailand as a beginner, however I have at other gyms seen beginners not get the attention that fighters get, just get there pads, and a bit of direction but not heaps, not the case here."

    "Beginners and people who don't have the intention of fighting can at other gyms not get the greatest training. This is certainly not the case at Honour Muay Thai. They still receive lots of attention from the trainers, as well as the fitness of pads, bag work, etc."

    "I chose to stay at the gym and purchased a package including accommodation and food (on recommendation from a fighter there), which was an excellent decision. The accommodation is totally adequate for a long stay in Thailand, Wi-Fi, air con, wardrobe, bathroom, shower, etc., and if you were only coming for a month or so and wanted something a bit fancier, there are heaps of places within walking distance. "

    "I had before arriving in Pattaya imagined it would be a lot more expensive than it was. Walking street and the rest of the Pattaya night-life is close enough to the gym that it's there if you want it but it's not on your doorstep, and not as touristy as you would imagine. There's lots of cheap Thai restaurants around. The food at the gym was excellent, I’m an incredibly fussy eater and I never went hungry. "

    "Delicious home cooked food twice a day with a large selection at each meal. Another huge difference that for me separates this gym from other gyms is the owner. The gym is owned by an English Thai boxer called Howard, and I think this is a huge reason the gym runs so well, he has fought many times in Thailand and trained at lots of gyms and I think his experiences training at various gyms are probably the reason the place runs so well. "

    "Every other gym I’ve trained at has felt a lot more like a business than Honour does, with Muay Thai coming 2nd after the gym owner making money. This isn't the case at all here. If you need anything, whether it be showing where the visa office is, renting a moped, organizing your journey, etc. Howard or any of the people at the gym are more than happy to help. They care about you, your time there, and your learning; you aren't just another member paying fees. It's a family there. "

    "Whether it's relaxing at the beautiful Pattaya beaches on Sunday or watching the fights at Theprasit stadium, the atmosphere is wonderful. Those looking to fight won't be disappointed either. The gym has lots of connections with promoters. I'm a heavyweight and found a previous gym very complacent and frankly lazy when it came to getting me fights."

    "To summarize, I can't recommend this place enough, definitely the best gym I’ve trained at. The area is lovely and cheap, everything from the people here to the trainers, training partners, staff, facilities are excellent, and a great place to train, whether you're looking to get fit, learn the art of Muay Thai, or fight. I'll definitely be back, and found everything I’d been looking for here."

    "I've Trained at several Muay Thai gyms in Thailand; for several months at a time (my longest stint was 6 months) at reputable gyms in Phuket (not tiger) and Chiang mai. Honour muay thai in pattaya stands out as my favourite and the best gym I’ve trained at. I've trained muay thai for around 7 years and have fought in Thailand 4 times (not more because of a 4 year stint without competition due to work commitments) so am neither an elite fighter nor an amateur. I found the trainers at Honour muay thai are excellent, especially the head trainer (who is probably the most knowledgeable and the best at teaching khru I’ve had the pleasure of learning from). They are all very friendly, knowledgeable and very passionate about muay thai and especially about teaching muay thai! whether you're a seasoned fighter (there are decorated farang fighters training there with lots more fights than my self) or a beginner/amateur. The biggest difference in the training at honor muay thai gym is simply that they care about you more than I’ve found at any other gym. I've of course bonded well with my trainers at other gyms and have felt they care about me, but at honour muay thai they are passionate about their teaching and want to see you improve as much as possible in the time you're there. There are times at other gyms when I’ve found myself shadow boxing, or hitting a bag where at no time where the trainers paying attention to me (you're just waiting for your turn on pads, or practising after) or you'll go with a trainer and do the same 1,2, kick, jab, kick, 1,2 that you've done a thousand times (I'm of course not disputing the importance of fundamentals and do believe you can't do these things enough) but I have had plenty of sessions at other gyms where I don't feel I’ve learnt anything or had a new technique to be practising the same as I did here, I’ve just got a little fitter doing the same techniques the same way I’ve been doing them for years. Here I always had a trainer overseeing what I was doing, if I was hitting a bag I was doing do so practising something new to me.

(private sessions are available should you not be able to attend classes for whatever reason but you learn so much in the group sessions I never felt the need to, whereas at other gyms I have felt I should use privates to learn the most and make the most of my time in Thailand)."
